Could have crossed into Canada on Sunday but inside decided to do an O/N at Wally’s in Bellingham. Woke up the next morning to a FROSTY 43F/6C.
Going through the Border crossing….
And of course it was NOT without incident !! That just wouldn’t be me !! Apparently my passport is FLAGGED due to the problems I had two years ago when I first brought this rig back into Canada. I thought I blogged about that but I can’t find the post so therefore can’t provide you with the link.
I was surprised because I’ve crossed back into Canada since that incident (on the East Coast) without any problems. I was told to pull over and go into the Office. You know it’s never good when you have to go into the Office !!
The guy asked me some questions – which I answered completely honestly ‘cause I knew he already knew the answers and then he took a look in the rig. I asked him about it and he told me the ‘flag’ will be on my passport for several years. That’s fine as long as I know and therefore won’t be taken by surprise again.
Safely back in Canada, I was headed to Wally’s in Port Coquitlam and although it was only 25Miles/40KMS, there was lots of left and rights, merging on the Freeway and off etc. I knew my FANCY and HIGHLY TECHNICAL GPS would be required.
Despite that I got horribly LOST and ended up about 20 miles in the opposite direction of where I wanted to be. I think I crossed this Bridge three times !! And it’s a TOLL BRIDGE !! Me Nerves !!
Amazingly I was greeted with beautiful sunshine ! But that was short lived – it’s been raining, foggy, and COLD ever since. This will surely be a good test of my upgraded solar system and so far (only two days) it is working wonderful. Bearing in mind though that I am not an energy hog.
Got to see and go to IHOP for breakfast with my EX EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT. Yup, ‘Da lazy bum up and quit on me !!
Heading to Chilliwack today to spend some time with an another old friend.
